The Jo fold is the most popular fold to beging with and is named after one of our original advisors Jo who created it. The Jo fold enables you to put even the thickest 60cm terry square on a newborn without adding too much bulk as it spreads the absorbency so evenly. The Jo fold is ideal if you only want to buy one size of flat terry square. The Jo fold is also the perfect fold if you're using muslins instead of terries on a newborn.

The Bat fold which is also known as the chinese fold or the butterfly fold is good for newborns. The bat fold is a small yet all encompassing nappy fold and helps to contain runny poo. The Bat fold is very absorbent and positions the bulk of the absorbency directly in the middle between the legs.

The Kite fold is a very popular fold but is best for older, taller or chunkier children. I wouldn't recommend this fold for a newborn baby. The kite fold is a large fold and is more bulky on the legs and tends to sit lower down the legs than other folds. The kite fold offers limited absorbency in the main middle area of the nappy however it is a good fold to support a booster pad for overnight use. When you put the kite fold on make sure you tuck the terry underneath at the legs to provide better containment and a neater fit.

The Gaynor fold is often called the Gaynor's fold for girls. The Gaynor fold gives a very trim fit around the legs and upper thighs, it's a good fold for a petite build or a younger child. The Gaynor fold is often the next fold families use after the Jo fold is outgrown.

The Ro fold was designed by one of our first customers back in 1999 after she couldn't find a fold that worked for her Son. The Ro fold is very neat and high-cut around the legs, this can help if you have any trim wraps you'd like to use with your terry squares. There are lots of layers at the front making the Ro fold especially good for boys. The Ro fold definitely isn't a beginners fold and takes a bit of practise, however give it a go and show off your expert folding skills!
